Experimental analysis and mathematical modelling of mechano-regulated growth and remodelling processes in urinary bladders of post-pubescent pigs

The urinary bladder is a central organ of vertebrates. Its primary function, the storage of significant volumes of urine, implies very large deformations, which leads to an important role of ...

Development and validation of a constitutive growth model for brain tissue characterising brain alterations in space and time

 

The brain, as a part of the central nervous system is probably the most complex biological system, which undergoes significant changes, especially during its growth phase. Because of these ...

Development of a three-dimensional model of structural and functional changes during skeletal muscle growth

During growth muscle tissue is subjected to extensive structural and mechanical changes. Thereby, the increase of muscle force is related to the adaptation of the three-dimensional muscle geometry and the ...

Mechanical characterisation at cell level

Oocytes are cells, whose sizes are big enough to allow a micro-mechanical characterisation. In our research, we study porcine oocytes with a diameter of about 140 µm. The Zona pellucida ...

Mechanical characterisation of the stomach

The stomach is a part of the digestive tract connecting the esophagus and the duodenum. It is a J-shaped hollow organ consisting of four parts: stomach dome, stomach entrance, stomach ...

Numerical modelling of inhomogeneous volume growth

Growth in living bodies is understood as the increase of mass and volume during their development. Depending on the directions in which volume growth takes place, the growth process ...

Numerical simulation of contraction in muscle packages

Aim of this research is the development and validation of a three-dimensional finite element muscle model for dynamic muscle contraction considering changes on the geometry of the muscle. Skeletal muscles ...

Polymers: From single chains to continuum bodies

Overwhelmingly many materials are comprised of polymers. In these a vast amount of single polymer chains are connected by various mechanisms to form a three-dimensional network. Such polymeric materials can ...

From the muscle fibre to muscle tissue – experiments, modelling and simulation at micro, meso, and macro scale

The present project deals with the analysis of complex deformation states of skeletal muscle tissue whose results will be integrated in a numerical multi-scale modelling approach. The essential aim is ...

The role of meso-scale structure on the mechanical response of soft musculoskeletal tissues

Muscle and tendon are particular bulky musculoskeletal tissues with a pronounced structural similarity: a hierarchical tubular architecture and a predominantly uniaxial alignment of elongated structures along a preferred direction. This ...

Cleaning mechanisms of immersed systems

In future the offer of fresh water in many regions on earth runs short. Various studies predict an increase of 55% in water consumption. The highest increases is expected in ...

Mechanical characterisation of the urinary bladder

The urinary bladder is a central organ of vertebrates. Due to the extreme deformations on the entire bladder tissue and especially the active smooth muscle tissue needs to meet special ...
